Enough of the wide right shit!!!
Seriously, though. As an FSU grad, I’m glad to see Jeb Bush taking a stance on this. How arrogant of the NCAA to decide for the seminole tribe what is offensive. Two figure heads of the NCAA were on the Dan Patrick show earlier to defend their action. Basically, there are “other” seminole members outside of Florida who were offended. These NCAA figure heads went so far as to compare FSU and Illinois mascots to that of being “black face.” This is a political move at best for the NCAA. If they truely had the interest of native americans at heart they would place a COMPLETE ban on the use of mascotts and names and not just during the post season.
Where does this end? If a rancher is offended by the use of a cowboy, do we ban OK state and Wyoming? How about victims of hurricanes protesting Miami’s use of the nickname(even though I would like to see that program shut down…kidding).
The NCAA is a complete disaster from their handling of probations where schools are punished long after the “corrupt” administration has left to shameless money-making off of student athletes while at the same time prohibiting them from any financial opportunities.
By the way, I really fucking hate Miami.[/quote]
